There will always be zombies

    I love mods that take a not so useful object in MineCraft and give it a purpose. An example of this is the "Rotten Flesh to Leather" mod by "EpicBlargh". 

   There is never a shortage of zombies to kill in MineCraft, so you always end up with a ton of rotten flesh. This mod will allow you to "smelt" the rotten flesh in the furnace,turning it into leather. This allows you to get a suit of armor early in the game, even if there are no cows around. It also comes in handy later in the game when you need to make bookshelves,etc.

Check out the mod here:

Break From Zombie on Facebook

Hello fellow MineCraftians!
I have started a Facebook page to complement my blog. I would love for you to head on over there and give it a "like". It will only take a second! :)

As always, have fun and keep mining,

New Beginnings

     So I am once again starting another series. I had unfortunate incident with my saved world files and, as stupid as I now realize this was, I had not backed up any of my worlds. So it is back to square one.

     I actually don't mind. There is something refreshing about starting again on a fresh new world, unscathed and untainted by ruins of half finished buildings, giant holes created by creeper explosions, and mines stripped of ore. Maybe it is just me, but I never tire of that feeling when you find your first vein of iron ore,and craft that first set of real tools and armor. Just for a fleeting moment, you feel almost invincible, ready to take on whatever that fresh new world  throws at you.

   So that is where I am now. In this series I will be doing something I have never done before in all my many hours of playing MineCraft; complete all of the achievements in vanilla MineCraft. I will also be spotlighting new  mods every week.
